The Berkshire Edge On-Air – Wednesday September 22, 2021

The Berkshire Edge LLC is a locally owned, regional publication. Our goal is to provide – regularly and in depth – content that truly reflects the life, interests and aspirations of this unusually rich and vibrant community.

Guided by respected journalistic standards, the principle of fairness, the quest for truth, a commitment to social, economic and environmental justice, and an abiding admiration for the independent spirit of the Berkshires, The Berkshire Edge offers in-depth local news reports and features, perspectives on the arts, wide-ranging commentary, and a comprehensive calendar of events – all written, illustrated, and, in some cases performed, with wit, intelligence, insight and humor.

1. Free battery charging for electric vehicles in Great Barrington? That’s a plan being touted by the Selectboard, for charging stations to be installed in a municipal parking lot behind Carr Hardware on Main Street.  The idea has aroused some criticism:
